Prayer for Humble Reliance Upon God
Lord, if you withdraw your hand, there is no grace.
If you cease to guide us, we have no wisdom. If you no longer defend
us, we have no courage. If you do not strengthen us, our chastity
is vulnerable. If you do not keep a holy watch over us, our watchfulness
cannot protect us. By ourselves we sink, we perish; when you are
with us, we are uplifted, we live. We are shaky, you make us firm.
We are lukewarm, you inflame us.
